Can't embed video

  1. I am looking for a workaround to embed an iframe video to my wordpress.com blog (Theme - Linen, blog: ontapblog.wordpress.com).

    I successfully loaded the video to Lockerz (vodpod) and copied the wordpress embed code. Unfortunately, no video was embedded as a result.

    Here is the embed code for the video that I'd like to display:

    <div style="background-color:#000000;width:368px;"><div style="padding:4px;"><iframe src="http://media.mtvnservices.com/embed/mgid:uma:video:vh1.com:917297/cp~series%3D2216%26id%3D1708700%26vid%3D917297%26uri%3Dmgid%3Auma%3Avideo%3Avh1.com%3A917297" width="360" height="293" frameborder="0"></iframe><p style="text-align:left;background-color:#FFFFFF;padding:4px;margin-top:4px;margin-bottom:0px;font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;">Get More:

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is ontapblog.wordpress.com.

  2. WordPress.com does not support embedding VH1 videos at this time. Check the list of Videos supported by WordPress.com. Often this is not an issue with WordPress.com as much as the video service not permitting such usage on WordPress.com. Talk to VH1 customer service about adding a WordPress.com shortcode to make the process easier for their fans to embed the videos. Thanks.

  3. Thank you, lorelle. I know that the video cannot be directly uploaded to wordpress.com.

    My problem would be solved if I could embed the video using the wordpress shortcode generated by Lockerz.

    The shortcode doesn't work. I know that others have experienced similar issues in the past. I've logged a support ticket on the Lockerz site but have yet to receive a response. Maybe there's no ready fix?
